    Welcome to Pinstack, Iteare. I moved your thread from the Reviews section to General Blackberry. The Reviews section is for just that, reviews of devices, etc.

    Please review the section regarding starting a new thread in here. Try to be sure to put it in the right forum. You put this thread in Blackberry Guides and that is for GUIDES rather than questions about resolving problems.


    How many rings do you get before your phone answers? I'm not sure that can be changed - I always thought it was set by the carrier. Anyone else?

    you can call your carrier and tell them you're having trouble answering your calls and have them set it to the maximum rings.

    Thanks, cat. I wonder if there a "standard" number of "regular" and "maximum" rings or if it's different by carrier too?

    not sure about that jb but i believe the max is not the standard because of extra tower usage but if you state you are having trouble getting your calls they will increase it.

    The carriers have control over the number of rings before going to VM.(Confirming, as I too had a similar issue w/ tmobile)

    As for the volume part, use the buttons on your upper right side of your cell to control your volume. You can also manage this under profile to escalating, mute, etc.

    If you call your VM you should be able to set how many times you want it to ring.just go to your options when calling in on VM.Don't quote me on this but I'm sure it can be done.

    Welcome to pinstack.
    Try dialing *94 with the number of rings you want it to ring (2 - 9).
    I.E. - *946, will set to 6 rings. *949 sets it to 9 rings..

    This used to work:

    Type *61*voicemailnumber**NUM# and hit send.
    (Replace "voicemailnumber" with your voicemail number and replace NUM with the number of seconds you wish to wait until forwarding to voicemail. NUM must be 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30.)

    So, if your voicemail number is 14045551234 and you want a 30 second delay, do this: *61*14045551234**30# and press SEND.
